Pacific Grove Walk of Remembrance

On May 14, the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History hosted the annual Walk of Remembrance to commemorate the burning of the Chinese Fishing Village at Point Alones in May of 1906. There were over three hundred people participating, many were descendent of the village. This event was initiated by the late Gerry Low Sabado 13 years ago to highlight the destruction of the fishing village that virtually ended the Chinese presence in Pacific Grove. With several hundred occupants, the fishing village was started about 1854 and became the largest Chinese village in California by 1900.
